I look forward to participating in an environment which will allow an individual with innovative and creative skills - but also sound marketing fundamentals - to grow and achieve in an established, prestigious organisation.

Tell me about a time you used your initiative to overcome a challenge at work::

Tell me about a time you used your initiative to overcome a challenge at work: Sales staff take the photos at Leamington and Coventry and I saw a need for a centralised edit/quality control and upload process. I established a system to synchronise image files between these locations, with minimal input from sales staff (drag and drop to desktop folder). The result is speedy processing and upload of images for both sites meaning more effective adverts and better continuity.

What can you bring to Listers Group that is new?:

What can you bring to Listers Group that is new? I believe that I am approaching this role from an unusual career path, one which may bring new and unconventional ideas. I think the fact that I don’t already know it all is a good thing. I consider my behaviour to date is that of a dedicated employee who questions and strives to improve.

Why should you get this job over any other candidates?:

Why should you get this job over any other candidates? Potential and ability. I strongly believe that I have yet to achieve my full potential, and feel that a company such as Listers is the right environment in which to do this – I hope very much to be given that opportunity and I know that I won’t waste it.

Thank you for your time:

Thank you for your time I hope that I have been able to convince you that I am the right candidate for this job. I look forward to hearing from you, Andy Blundell andyablundell@gmail.com
